I have recently changed my power supplier at my home here in the United Kingdom to one of the smaller power companies not directly associated with the big six power companies which include EDF and British Gas.
Yes, I have moved into a smaller house in time but even so with two bills over a similar period of time at the new house and the bill from the new power company is cheaper by a significant amount than the previous supplier which was one of the big six here in the United Kingdom.
It has certainly opened my eyes to the fact just how excessive the big six here in the United Kingdom have charged for gas and electricity even with the excuse that they have to invest in the power grid and generation. It has highlighted to me just how much they have profiteered off the backs of people like myself over the years.
Even with the fact the smaller power companies do not invest as much in the power grid and generation it makes me wonder just how they can charge prices for gas and electricity which are significantly less and still make money?
My personal opinion like all older and more established companies here in the United Kingdom the big six power companies basically put profits and shareholders before customers even to the detriment of the United Kingdom itself.
I would recommend that everyone in the United Kingdom do what I have done recently and turn their back on the big six power companies and sign up with the smaller power company en mass. As it is easy to do and if enough of us do it the big six grip on gas and electricity here would be broken for once and for all time.
Plus it would only take a small percentage of people to switch to start to worry the big six as they are so profit and money orientated even a small drop in profits with get them to stand up and think!
